Alina Lie was born in Norway. She discovered in Science Class through a blood test kit that her dad was not actually her father. Her parents had divorced a few years prior and her mother had moved back to her home country. Alina traveled to Chernarus to confront her mother and uncovered the lie she had kept hitten for years. Not having dealt with her emotions, she decided she'd rather stay than return to Norway with a "stranger" as a dad. At some point within the next year, the outbreak happened. So after her family had been brutally murdered by infected, she went on a journey that took her from Central Kopec to South Zagoria, looking for her paternal grandparents.
